On Christmas eve...
We went to Candle light service, and to our surprise, our youngest daughter called and asked if she could tag along. I cannot explain just how blessed I feel when our kids/grandkids come along to mass with us.
Our 2 year old grandchild, is not used to being confined for long periods of time, a little chatty, and wiggly but we enjoyed our surroundings.
It ended up being a very late evening, and we finally got all chores done around 1:30 AM and then crashed.
Christmas morning... Busy in the kitchen preparing the turkey, stuffing, sweet potato casserole, and homemade dinner rolls. I had asked our oldest to hold the big event at her place, so once all was done cooking, we packed up the food, the gifts, and a few board games and headed out.
Had dinner around 4PM... Oh so good! Sipped on some wine; some of which was also homemade. Then went to the livingroom to open all the christmas gifts. Later, we played a few Cranium games, we sat around the table for a few hours laughing and playing, and just enjoying out time together. It was all one could asked for, having family all in one house sharing, giving, and remembering on this great day, Christ was born.
Happy Birthday Jesus, and Thank you for all your blessings!
